Not understanding a situation creates doubts. Misunderstanding a situation creates problems. Purposely misunderstanding a situation generates unwarranted problems. Why would the United States (U.S.) purposely misunderstand North Korea (DPRK)? The U.S. State Department has to explain to itself and others its irrational policies. Despite U.S. flip flops on the subject, George H. Bush administration’s original policy, which pursued the replacement of the autocratic DPRK government by a friendly and democratic government as an essential goal, remains in place in the minds of DPRK and U.S. leaders. Similar to East and West Germany’s final arrangements, success of this policy will give impetus to the unification of the Koreas and establish a strong nation, allied with the West, on Russia’s Siberian border and the Northeastern Asian mainland.
Andre Vltchek visited DPRK and liked it a lot better than the USA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yqBrDsXXwc
With all due respect, this sounds like it has been written by someone who has never been to DPRK and doesn't understand it.
